Use the [default] stanza to define any global settings. * You can also define global settings outside of any stanza, at the top of the file. * Each conf file should have at most one default stanza. If there are multiple default stanzas, attributes are combined. In the case of multiple definitions of the same attribute, the last definition in the file wins. * If an attribute is defined at both the global level and in a specific stanza, the value in the specific stanza takes precedence. KEYS: specify your public and private keys for encryption. queueing = <boolean> * Whether or not audit events are sent to the indexQueue. * If set to "true", audit events are sent to the indexQueue. * If set to "false", you must add an inputs.conf stanza to tail the audit log for the events reach your index. * Default: true
